Approach to learning and assessment

The teaching approach in this program is designed to foster your development as an independent learner so you will be able to extend your capabilities once you graduate.

Methods of teaching may include:

Classroom Teaching: This utilises a range of teaching and learning techniques including lectures, guest lectures by practitioners, class presentations, group discussion and student-led discussion. This style of learning is designed to maximise your understanding of the curriculum content and skills. It is designed to provide an environment where you can ask questions and seek feedback as well as contribute to class discussion with your peers. Classes may be offered in intensive mode over weekends or in week-long blocks.

Problem-Based Learning:  You may be in a small group or team, or work individually to apply knowledge to solve problems and examine case studies. This technique is designed to simulate the experiences you will encounter working as an information systems practitioner.

Cooperative learning: Enables you to work in collaborative or team-based tasks in class or using discussion board

Flexible Delivery: The program may incorporate extensive use of online teaching resources in the provision of support resources for you, and for accessing research sites of relevance to the course content.

Assessment is designed to give you the opportunity to demonstrate your capabilities. Various forms of assessment will be used throughout the program since the assessment you undertake will be appropriate to the objectives and student learning outcomes for each course.  Successfully completing the assessment tasks ensures the professional computing bodies and prospective employers of a level of achievement in the capabilities outlined in the program.

Assessment may include:

Formal examinations: which provide the opportunity to demonstrate your understanding and application of fundamental principles to either practical or theoretical issues;

Research projects: which assess your ability to assimilate, analyse, critically reflect on information;

In-class tests: provide you with timely feedback on understanding within a course and allows feedback for further development of skills and capabilities during the semester;

Formal reports: to demonstrate that you can gather and arrange business and technical information into readable documents;

Formal presentations: enable the development of verbal communication skills and organisational abilities;

Reflective papers: where you reflect on what has been learnt and the methods utilised to enhance learning.

If you have a long term medical condition, disability and/or other form of disadvantage it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or the Disability Liaison Unit if you would like to find out more: http://www.rmit.edu.au/disability
